Neuro Diagnostics – GitaRam Hospital

Neurology :

The motor and sensory skills, hearing and speech, vision, coordination, and balance are all assessed during a neurological examination. It can also be used to assess mental health, mood, and behaviour. A tuning fork, flashlight, reflex hammer, and eye inspection tool are among the tools used during the examination. The results of the neurological examination and the patient’s medical history are utilized to create a differential diagnosis, which helps identify which other diagnostic tests and treatments are required. Diagnostic tests and procedures are essential tools for doctors to confirm or rule out a neurological problem or other medical issues.

some of the common screening tests-

  • Laboratory screening tests of blood, urine or other bodily fluids may aid clinicians in diagnosing disease, determining the severity of the condition, and monitoring therapeutic drug levels. Blood tests, for example, can reveal infections, poisons, clotting issues, or antibodies that indicate the existence of an autoimmune illness.
  • People with a family history of a neurological condition can have their genetics tested to see if they contain one of the disease-causing genes. Patients or parents of children who are being tested may benefit from genetic counseling to better understand the aim of the testing and what the results potentially indicate.
  • Brain scans are a group of imaging techniques that are used to detect cancers, blood vessel abnormalities, strokes, traumas, aberrant brain development, and brain hemorrhage. Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), etc are all examples of brain scans.
